THE SURVIVOR OP GOLIAD
Loses His Life in a Burning
Hotel at Denton.
Denton 'fox. Aug. 25. A vory dis
astrotis (iro occurrod lioro at 2 o'clock
this morning In which Col. A. J.
Hitchcock bo old and woll-knowu
Texas veteran lost his life. The fire
originated in tho kitchen of tho
James hotol on Oak etreet recently
kept by S. W. Kcetou but for tho last
few days by a young man by tho uamo
of Robert Fain. It was discovered by
A. W. Roborson Esq. boardor of the
placo who at onco raised tho alarm
but being a cripple was unable to
mako any cllbrt to subduo tho llnmcs.
tho hotel occupied tho second story
of two brick business houses and had
two stairways one leading up on the
outside and auothor not used lead
ing down into ouo of tho business
houses. The proprietor Ml. Fain
examined tho condition of '41)0 firo
and pronounced it beyond control
and notified the guests of tho fact
Mr. Ilobinson who occupied the but e
room as Col. Hitchcock says that he
aroused him up and Jtold him whore
the firo was and that the way was
clear to the oulsido stairway and that
whilo he was throwing a trunk out of
tho window that Hitchcock st&rtod out
and that he followed soon after him
but did not sco him any nioro. Roach-
ing tho stroot and not seeing him
any more and knowing that ho was
old and iulirni ho scut a man to search
tiio rooms to soo if ho had lost his way
or had been overcome with the smoko.
search was made in every room except
whoro tho flames were already raging
and ho was not fonud add if was sup.
posed that he had coma down tho
stairs and disappeared in the crowd.
In a fow minutes tho building was
wrapped in ilamos and in a short tiii.e
converted into a heap of ruins. It
was not until after daylight that the
fate of ono ot Texas' truo aud tried
sons was known. Search wat made
for tho body and at 2 o'clock p. m.
this ovcuing it was found and it was
then discovered that ho had gone down
the stairway which load into one of
tho business houses bolow and the
door at tho foot of tho stairs being
lockod was thou caught and porished
in tho flames. Colouol Hitchcock was
ono of tho survivors of tho Fannin
iuassacrco at Goliad in March 1837.
Ho thoro with two or threo of his
comrades eluded tho rod hand of
Mexican vengeance but last night he
was mot and surrounded by a more
terrible enomy than ho had encounter
ed at Goliad in but a fow loot of
friends who knew nothing of his
troublo and was forcod to succumb.
Tho sad affair is vory much deplored
On Webster On t

graphor within tho last three months
has mado wonderful improvements in
tho art of photography particularly in
the lino of babv pictures. Mr. W. of-

Shooter Bill " and another occupied tho ad-
joining room night belore lust and he was
arrested this morning and held for tho

gruntled Andrew. Tho wll'o happened to

verely that her husband wus completely
rattled. Andrews' letter brought down the
house. So ho was brought down this inorii
